A ray of golden light circles a bag in the window as if a halo of divine light were shining upon it. Meanwhile, in my left hand I hold one of the fakes I purchased for my research on the post “Knock off or Not”. I do love the look of my new purse, but I’m also somewhat ambivalent about it.
This post is something of a follow-up to “Knock off or Not”, an article I wrote on the subject of counterfeit handbags. My plan was to schedule this to post during my vacation so there wouldn’t be a big gap in publishing, but I was just too busy before I left to finish. But I digress…
What I like best about my post on fake purses are your comments. It’s so interesting to see what people think of counterfeit merchandise, from concerns over what others will think of you if you wear a fake designer bag to more serious worries over the possibility of abusive child labor that might be involved in the making of the bags. I found myself in conversation with some really intelligent and insightful people, and that of course that helped me to look at the issue in a different light. There are also some people who don’t feel it’s a big deal. No matter what your opinion, I enjoyed all your comments and respect your opinions.
Do I look a little scared in this photo? It’s not because the fashion police are out for my fake bag, the security at this mall doesn’t allow photographs! We were running around trying to get a few in before they kicked us out. And they DID kick us out, but we were already in the parking lot so I’m not sure it mattered much. I felt like such a rebel. What I do for my blog!
Clearly I have a “thing” for fake crocadile. The shoes and purse match.
Personally I love this outfit. It feels very sexy to me. I think if I could I would dress like this all the time.

Ever gotten kicked out of a mall for taking photos?
